This year's Emirates Literature Festival is going digital
In February, the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature 2020 returned for its 12th edition, bringing together authors and literary fans from all over the world in celebration of the written and spoken word. In case you missed it, you won't have to wait until next year as the Emirates Literature Foundation has announced an online launch of its most recent edition.
A new series of filmed panel discussions will take its digital stand as one new session from this year's festival will be published on YouTube every week — good news for us who've been at home.
The first session took place earlier this week on April 7th with explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes and mountaineer Sir Chris Bonington. Future sessions are set to see discussions with renowned authors including Jane Goodall, Fatima Bhutto, Tayari Jones and many more.
